European Cruises

The Mediterranean has long been a favourite cruise destination.


A short flight can take you to your embarkation port – Barcelona – Palma (Majorca) – Venice - Civitavecchia (Rome) or Valencia. For those who would prefer not to, or are unable to fly, there are cruises departing from  the UK ports of Southampton - Dover and Harwich.

Or fly into magical Venice for your Eastern Mediterranean cruise.

The vibrant Greek islands of Mykonos, Santorini and Corfu. The ancient monuments of Athens and Olympia (the birth place of the original Olympic Games) or where east meets west in Istanbul.



For those who are averse to flying, a cruise from Southampton to the Canary Islands could be the answer.


In addition to the Canary Islands, ports of call include Vigo on the west coast of Spain, Lisbon and the beautiful island of Madeira.  Mediterranean cruises are only available from spring until autumn from UK, but a Canary Island cruise can be taken during the winter months to take advantage of the temperate climate.



Cruises around the Baltic and the Norwegian Fjords are becoming increasingly popular.
